William C. Seaver was born 17 mar 1823 in Wythe Co. VA. He was the son of John and Nancy (Riggle) Seaver (various spelling variations). John was the son of William Seaver and Unknown. Nancy was the daughter of Simon Riggle and Unknown. William C. married Elizabeth Ann Pruner 24 June 1845 in Smyth Co, VA. William C. owned a furniture store and a funeral parlor in Marion, Smyth Co, VA.

Francis Seaver was born 19 aug 1821 and married James M. Pruner (Prooner) 22 Dec. 1837 in Wythe Co, VA.

John Seaver, father of William C. and Francis, died in Sept 1835, and Nancy Riggle Seaver died before 12 Oct 1835, leaving their 7 children as orphans: Susan 1820, Francis 1821, William C. 1823, John Henry 1825, Mary Ann 1827, Margaret 1829, Elizabeth Jane 1831.

William C. had an uncle named William C.--1800-1869 m. Sarah Seacatt 1827 in Wythe Co, VA.

I have James M. Pruner and Elizabeth Pruner Seaver as the children Henry and Sarah Ann (Boggess) Pruner.
